us next week is a caricature of democrats, republicans feel like democrats successfully charactered mitt romney who favors the rich over the middle class, played him as a greedy republican. so they're going to flip the script a bit on democrats and say, hey, these are the guys who love big g. they love big spending, they can't get new, they can't find anything to cut in a trillion dollar budget? you have to be kidding me. we'll see a replay of these very stereo typical care ka turs that both parties like to trot out. that's why i believe there won't be a lot of movement, even as the senators bring their sequester bill to the floor that would avoid some of these kits. >> let me get your take on this quote -- in hans christian andersen terms, obama is the princess and sequester is the pea. over the next ten years it amounts to a $1.16 trillion cut or roughly three cents on every dollars. we might as well begin our great national bankruptcy proceedings right now. what do you make of that analysis? >> i find it interesting, because i'm hearing this all of a sudden in unison from a lot o
to reform our tax good. bring down the rates for all americans to make it fair. they expect us to continue to expand american energy production throughout our count country. it will give us a huge advantage if we continue to develop our energy resources. and i think most americans believe that we have to stop government overregulation that's strangling our economy and economic growth. last night the president offered up more of the same. higher taxes and more stimulus spending. and just as disappointing, we're weeks away from the president's sequester and the president laid out no plan to lieliminate the sequester and the harmful cuts that will come as a result of it. republicans have twice passed bills on the sequester. it's upon democrats to show us their plan to stop the e sequester from going into effect. >> good morning. house republicans this year are going to be about making life work for more american es. now we intend to go forcefully with a plan to help folks in terms of education, in terms of health care, in terms of facilitating better work and better opportunity. now last nigh
, the poll shows that the win is essentially at the back of advocates for new gun laws but can they use the public sentiment to their advantage and if so how? >> i think the senate is still a very tough lift on these, particularly on the assault weapons ban. i think, you know, most people think realistically the only thing that could happen is the legislation on background checks. you know, these national poll numbers really don't give you a very good reflection of, you know, the united states senate, where, you know, it's -- people from rural states have the sort of disproportionate influence in the senate. it's 100 senators, two from each state and the national poll numbers don't reflect the political reality a lot of these guys see at home. >> i'm wondering since it has been generally accepted background checks were more likely than the assault weapons ban how bad is the sticking point they have? are they likely to push through it? >> it is pretty significant. tom coburn the republican from oklahoma is really key to these talks. chuck schumer the new york democrat is trying to get co
, and continues the slow but steady economic recovery. it comes right after we learned the u.s. economy shrank for the first time in three years. gdp fell up .1% in the fourth quarter of 2012. part of the economic pause was because of hurricane sandy. but it was also because of big cuts in defense spending. >>> we also learned yesterday that members of the president's job council are out of a job. the council had a two-year charter that will not be renewed. this morning, speaker john boehner said this is the wrong time for president obama to scrap his jobs council and delay his budget. month after month, we see the same thing, high unemployment and even more debt. the white house knew this criticism was coming. >> when we hear some of the somewhat ridiculous criticisms about this, they come from people on capitol hill who have consistently opposed every growth initiative and job creation initiative the president has put forward. >> i want to bring in "washington post" political reporter karen tumelty and michael crowley. good morning. >> nice to be here. >> he asked the chairman of the white h
